Pros:

John was very accommodating and the airport was easy to move around. He even went out and got the car for us as my husband is handicapped and we were his last customer.

Cons:

The wait time at the airport desk to get the car that was already reserved. John needed help that day! He was very nice, but out-manned with the requests for cars at the time. Wish we could have had a van instead of an SUV. Cost was HIGH I thought compared to a van rental for the same number of days in Florida.

Pros:

Gas mileage was very good for a large SUV

Cons:

The SUV was not washed. Dog hair all over the rear luggage area. The back of the front passenger seat was dirty with shoe prints from a child and the carpet on the driver side was dirty.

KAYAK

Pros:

The people on both ends were terrific. Friendly and helpful to the max

Cons:

With the gas shortage it was a little scary leaving on a four hour trip with a little more than 1/2 a tank of gas. Not the fault of Alamo, it was just the reality for me and Alamo. Happily, by driving 5mph under the speed limit, I was able to save gas and extended the expected range of travel by over 45 miles.

Dog hair in the car when we picked it up. Was given a number in case there was any problems and it was a wrong number. Never got the problem taken care of so we cleaned it up ourselves.

Upon arriving to the OAJ terminal where the Avis counter was, I was informed by the attendant that they had given my vehicle away and had no other vehicles available. I was not notified that they had reallocated my vehicle to someone else. I attempted to contact the Avis helpdesk, but was subjected to a convoluted process/call tree and was unable to receive any clarification as to why my reservation was not found or why the vehicle was given to someone else.

Picking up the car was the easiest experience I've ever had. Man at the counter had me in the car ready to go in less than 5 minutes. I always hate picking up rental cars because they hassle you over everything, but not here. After a long day of travel nothing was more appreciated than being in my rental car that quickly and easily.

Pros:

The staff was nice and the drop-off was easy.

Cons:

The car was not clean. There was a filmy goo-type substance on the dash and interior. It also smelled faintly of cigarettes. It was also the oldest rental car I've ever driven and it was frustrating that I couldn't even hook up my Bluetooth music because the car was so old.

KAYAK

Pros:

Staff was professional and easy to work with.

Cons:

The vehicle smelled like cigarette smoke. It took me a couple of days to get the odor out of the vehicle. I was not given return instructions and had to make the return in a Sunday when Enterprise is closed. There is no one you can speak to for instructions or help. There should be weekend check in information sheets or something on the building/door to assist customers. Not everyone has computer access or knows how to navigate websites to find such information.

4.0 Okay

Dec. 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

Drop off was easy. There was some confusion about driving on a toll road and who owned the vehicle and what I should do. I think that should be simple and clear. The stuff is cheerful if not super knowledgeable.

Cons:

All the vehicles were very dirty, even the one marked "clean". The vehicle they had chosen for us was only a 12-passenger after we had reserved a 15-passenger, confirmed we needed 15, and made an extra deposit. We had to go kill an hour in town and come back for a pickup which they admittedly only sprayed down with Lysol and did a quick vacuum. It was really gross and I had to clean it myself to feel comfortable putting my kids in it. There were visible smears of some substance on the dash and visors etc. The fuel was not full at pickup. I wanted to see how far off it was and it took $6 to fill it. I returned it completely full and told them, but they were apathetic. That's disappointing. *They did offer me a 10% discount for it not being clean. I appreciated that (I did not ask, they offered). This indicated they were aware the vehicle was sub-standard.

Top tips for renting a car in Jacksonville

  • Jacksonville is a water-adjacent city with several parks, museums and opportunities for outdoor adventure. The New River, which comprises the city’s southeastern edge, is perfect for kayaking, diving and other aquatic recreation. With all this available to visitors, it’s a prime destination for outdoor adventure. If you’re heading here on vacation, you’ll want to secure a car rental in Jacksonville to ensure you have access to these sites and nearby spots, including the Croatan National Forest. A vehicle also ensures that you can carry gear with you and explore at your leisure. While the city does have some transportation options, the routes are limited and make reaching many of the exciting sites either time-intensive or impossible. Rentals are also likely to be more cost-effective than opting for taxis and rideshares, too.
  • If you’ve secured a Jacksonville car rental for your trip to the North Carolina city, you can pick it up at Albert J. Ellis Airport (OAJ). Many of the top brand-name rental car companies are represented at OAJ, including Budget, Avis, Enterprise, Hertz and National. To find the desks for these companies, simply head toward the baggage claim area that is situated to the right of the terminal as you’re exiting the building. There are also rental facilities in town: an Enterprise on Marine Blvd. and a Hertz on Western Blvd.
  • Residents and visitors in Jacksonville rely on personal vehicles for transportation, so the streets are often crowded. While driving here, you’ll want to stay alert for other vehicles and, whenever possible, have a clear sense of your directions prior to heading out on the road. While driving downtown or near urban parks, keep an eye out for pedestrians and be prepared to yield to people crossing the road at crosswalks or even where no crossing is designated.
  • There are two major roadways that service Jacksonville: U.S. 17 and North Carolina Highway 24. Both cut through the city and support a network of other frequented expressways used by commuters heading to and from work. While traffic in Jacksonville is not significant, there are windows of rush hour that you’ll want to be aware of, which are between roughly 6am and 7:30am and 4:30pm and 6:30pm.
  • Book your rental car in Jacksonville at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
